Thank you for reaching out to the Community. This does seem odd and we'd like to have a closer look into this,
First we recommend that you start with performing a clean reinstall of the app. This is different from a quick reinstall and could be helpful to get rid of any cached files that might be causing trouble.
On another note, can you let us know if this occurs on a specific device or multiple devices?
Keep us posted so that we can continue to assist you if you need us to 🙂
You mentioned you've tried a few things already, but would you mind checking if the battery optimization settings on your iPhone are off? Here is how to do that. It's also worth making sure that the background app refresh is enabled for Spotify, as this can help improve the overall app performance.
As we weren't able to reproduce the issue on our end, could you try it with a different account or on another device and network and let us know if you still get the same result? A screen recording of what's happening would also be very helpful - just make sure that there's no private/sensitive info displayed.
I am also experiencing this issue.
iPhone 13 Pro
App Version : 188.8.131.522
Hi there @OilRigDigger,
Thanks for the info.
Can you let us know when this issue started occurring for you and what troubleshooting you've done so far?
It would also be helpful if you can upload a short video recording of the issue 🙂
I’m having the same issue.
Would you mind sharing with us a short video which shows this behavior in action? That way we can get a clear idea of how things look on your end.
In case you're unable to attach the file directly to your response, you can instead upload it to a cloud service and share the link so we can get a closer look.
Thanks and cheers!
Hi I’m going through the same problem, I’ve tried re installing and my data saver isn’t on. It only happens on my iPad. I can’t attach a screen recording of it either. I also don’t know how to upload it as a link. It’s been happening for a while now.
I’m not sure how to record. It happens on both my iPhone and iPad when I’m plugged into an aux cord playing music while I teach dance/fitness. I hit pause and then the curser jumps back to the beginning or earlier in the song. If I hit play, it plays from right where it paused. Then I can’t hit the back button. It will jump to the prior song on the playlist. Sometimes I can run my finger along the track to scroll back and forward and get it to the beginning of the song. The issue is the cursed jumping back when you hit pause.
We'd really appreciate a screen recording of the described behavior, so we can understand exactly how things look on your end.
Could you check this page to find out how to make a screen recording on an iOS mobile device and then attach the recording in your reply?
Keep us posted,
I’m trying to attach a screen recording and it won’t let me.
Thanks for the reply and for trying to upload the video.
You can also upload it to YouTube and share a link in the thread. Would that work for you?
We'll be on the look for your reply,
Hey there you, Yeah, you! 😁 Welcome - we're glad you joined the Spotify Community! While you here, let's have a fun game…
